What is the research behind the migration data set?

Watch Professor Heaven Crawley introduce the MEDMIG data set.

Professor Heaven Crawley is the Director of MIDEQ. As you have learned from our team of MIDEQ researchers, MIDEQ is a current, five-year project running until 2024. The project aims to produce robust, comparative, widely accessible data on South-South migration, inequality and development, and fieldwork and data collection is underway even as it navigates the restrictions and global challenges of COVID-19.

In this course we will show you how you can use data in the classroom to teach both migration. To do so we use a data set from MED MIG. MED MIG was a migration research project led by Professor Heaven Crawley in 2015-2016, looking into the backgrounds, experiences and aspirations of refugees and migrants entering Italy, Greece, Malta and Turkey in that period. In this video, watch Professor Heaven Crawley introduce the MED MIG data set, and the stories behind the numbers.
